After waiting 3 weeks for my cracked exhaust manifold to get welded up, I got it back today with a no charge failure to fix note that said it was beyond repair. It surely is now as the welding spiderwebbed it into ruin. I have talked to several folks who have what they are calling 292 exhaust manifolds for sale but they all have smaller exhaust outlets (mine goes straight down and is about 2 3/8 i.d.) while the ones for sale locally are closer to 2 inch i.d. and have a 30 degreee sweep to the rear like a newer 250 exhaust.

From what I can find on the all knowing web, it sounds like a 250 exhaust for a non integral head will bolt up fine but I am wondering if

1. Anyone is running the smaller diameter exhaust on a 292 with good results and;

2. If there is a source for the larger diameter exhaust for a 292?

I don't want to go with an Offenhouser or some other hopped up deal but would like it to look stockish and not too expensive.
